Ehhhh, if its not an official Fedora project, and doesn't use the name
because it doesn't match up with the goals of Fedora, then I really
don't think we'd want to have it in the infrastructure.

IMHO, you should feel free to take the open source tools that we're
using (cvs, plague, mock) and make a separate repository as an addon to
what Fedora provides, but this isn't a direction that I think we want to
take Fedora.

As to items that aren't software, content items, we already have some
guidelines in place to include them, and we're always willing to revisit
and revise them when people want to include things outside the scope
(assuming they've not already been forbidden).

"We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always
that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence
and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We
will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in
our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended
from fearful men -- not from men who feared to write, to speak, to
associate and to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular."
